My husband and I built our first house together a few months ago. It was wonderful and horrible all at the same time. The horrible was mostly due to individual circumstances that I will refrain from sharing. Even as I partly label it “horrible” I am reminded that every good and every perfect gift comes from the Lord (James 1:17) and our new house is definitely a gift from Him, because of Him and for Him.
As difficult as it was at times, I enjoyed choosing paint colors. flooring, appliances and SO MUCH MORE for our “forever home.” While it was grueling (and often frustrating) to spend hours upon hours with sub-contractors, it was also extremely fun and exciting to know that I got to pick out what I wanted.
I created a vision board long before we found a lot and broke ground. I’m far from being an architect but I can use a pencil on a piece of notebook paper! I dreamed it, I saw it and I drew it on a piece of paper. Thank goodness for a legit architect who was able to convert my chicken-scratch to a rendering!
One of my favorite rooms is the guest or “funky” bathroom as I labeled it upon choosing the flooring. It’s a farmhouse, rustic look that also offers clean lines. Perfect. The black and white decorative floor with the stained vanity and mirror….ahh….I love it.
What’s your style? Don’t be afraid to embrace it! Holler at me and I’ll help you make it happen!
